Grace Murrell Suite

The cleverly designed Grace Murrell Suite

This room can be set up as one room or can be divided into 4 smaller rooms, with sound-proof partitions.

The room divisions make the Grace Murrell Suite perfect for many different types of events, meetings, celebrations, weddings, parties for adults and parties for children.

The Grace Murrell Suite is located on the lower ground floor and benefits from floor to ceiling windows, with access onto a wide south facing terrace and views across Torre Abbey Gardens.

Whatever type of event you are organising, our professional event coordinators, in-house caterers, and audio-visual partners will work with you to create a bespoke package to meet your needs.

The setting by the sea is inspirational, the venue is modern and flexible, our team is dedicated and experienced and our food is innovative yet value for money.

Both the Grace Murrell Suite and Burdett Room benefit from a dedicated entrance with adjacent on-site parking as well as a foyer and registration area.

The Grace Murrell Suite was named after the matriarch of the Murrell family, who donated the land the RICC is built on to the Council back in the 1980s. More information about the history of the RICC.
